A travel addicted IT-geek and foodie. Born in northern Europe, with family in every corner of the world.
I have travelled a lot, and I have eaten amazing meals all over the world, I have met so many amazing people. The more I learn, the more I realise I don't know - so I keep on exploring!
Passionate about sustainability.
Yes, Thailand, the country in South East Asia where Bangkok is the capital, I am not mixing up Taiwan and Thailand like people in general often do, the same way they mix up Sweden and Switzerland, I really mean Thailand. Just like Taiwan a food heaven, but another type of food heaven.
It's all garlic
Seeing the post made me relive, in my memory, many of the wonderful things I have seen and experienced when I have been in the country; And with Som Tum, or Som Tam as it's also called, on the top list I can remember the flavours, sense the aroma of the fish sauce and the crushed garlic in the air, I can remember the wonderful feeling of sitting on the roadside, munching on a delicious and very spicy Green Papaya Salad, som tum salad.
I ate green papaya salad many times, full of garlic and chilies, flavours that suits my palate very well - someone who has problem with garlic or spices will not want to be close to me, garlic is a staple in my house, not only because it is tasty, and, I believe, very healthy, but also because it helps against mosquitoes, or so I believe.
